You did a good job with these 2 fonts. It's actually a good idea to create that kind of asymmetry by mixing a serif and sans serif together, bold and standard. That creates some contrast and dynamic. The very bold "e" with the italic "n" that is lighter looks very nice together. There is absolutely no reason to not use Times New Roman. If it's ...

It's called Kilogram. It's free. Check it out here www.kallegraphics.com/typographics/kilogram/ You can use whatfontis.com in the future to help you find fonts visually.

Since this is a jpeg, you will have to turn each letter into a vector. The quick way but not very good way of turning a jpeg into a vector is by going to Object -> Image Trace -> Make. Red: You can then select Image Trace Panel to fine tune the selection. This will bring up a window where you can select options so Illustrator knows how you want the ...

The stars are generally used to indicate a scene change at the top or bottom of a page when a scene change is otherwise indicated by two returns. At the top or bottom of a page, there isn't necessarily room for the extra blank line space, so a row of asterisks is used instead. The only time I've seen a notation about entirely blank pages is in legal and ...

In publications there is often no indicator. The lack of any content in a bound publication is enough to know it was intentionally left blank. Blank pages are really only ever an issue in loose sheet letters, where the lack of content may cause confusion. It's never an issue in an actual publication to just have blank pages. In fact often the cover of a ...

With design you can often follow your gut... If it doesn't pop into your mind immediately, it's probably not going to be very intuitive, as a designer I am vaguely aware of a mark used in old books, but I don't think I would recognise it... Most designers if they must signal a page is left blank intentionally will write that as you've noted, however I think ...

Should text be indented? Well that is a matter of personal preference but a vast majority of sites I have seen do not indent paragraphs. You have to look at the origin of HTML When HTML started there was not a standard guide. HTML was original created by Berners-Lee considered who wrote the browser and server software. People at major organizations asked ...

This is mostly a personal preference and some would argue why people don't use a Drop Cap instead of indentions, too. Personally the space between paragraphs merit the indention. My understanding of the purpose when using the indent is only to be used for new blocks of content when writing something like a blog post for a site. That said when some ...

You can separate paragraphs a number of ways. Indents Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur in orci pellentesque, volutpat metus eget, interdum mauris. Nunc faucibus lectus id libero blandit, et varius augue vehicula. Cras eu dictum libero, a elementum velit. Fusce ultrices malesuada elit, et convallis massa tristique ...

The text quality will always be better in vector files; for this Illustrator is better. It's better to use a publishing software such as Indesign or QuarkXpress since they're made for that kind of work, have better performance and also create texts in vectors. You also gain way more control on the output, the colors/pantones, and it's easier to use for ...

This can be done easily in Illustrator. OPTION 1 (top JPG as example, and top image on the second JPG): 1) You need to duplicate the text you want to apply the effect on. Type your text and then use the "transform" command in the menu "object", then select "move". In the window of "move", put zeros everywhere to duplicate this text in the same same ...

There are also the 'crisp' 'normal' and other text modes near the font size option.

The differences are usually very minor ones and sometimes very hard to notice. It can be a slightly different kerning for example. None are better than the other. The important thing is to try to stick to the same version when possible. Otherwise your publishing or design software might not recognize the version you're using and will show the font as ...

To change the way your fonts look and prevent that blurry effect, maybe you could make some tests changing the font anti-aliasing setting on the character panel (see screenshot below.) You need to select the same one for each line of texts. I think what you may be looking for is the Mac LCD option for your font. ===== EDIT: One thing I also noticed: You ...

I wouldn't say the other answers are wrong at all, but will simply offer a different POV: designing the typeface is called type design and the art of using type is called as typography Those would also be my definitions. If you're skilled at designing with type, sure, you can call yourself a typographer. I'd argue any graphic designer or web ...

Very rarely. Any time you claim to be a professional X, you're staking your reputation on a claim to have specific, comprehensive expertise in that profession. With typography, some graphic designers can justify such a claim, but most can't stretch that far. "Typographer" implies professional expert. Most good designers are adept at typography, and many ...

Your first line "Since graphic/web designers focus on typography" is by in itself not accurate. Graphic and web designers do a lot more than focus on typography. They are also responsible for layout design, they also plan and design interaction(web designers), they also plan and develop color themes. So in a nutshell, even if you spend a lot of time with ...
